PROJECT SCOPE

The Rutgers University Cell and DNA Repository (RUCDR) is a designated national core facility that provides clinical biosamples, data processing and repository samples to NIH-funded grantees and private research foundations.  The lighting design helped transform an existing 12,000 SF lab building to a sophisticated research facility supporting labs for automated (robotic) nucleic acid extraction, processing and molecular analysis, as well as offices and gathering spaces for faculty and graduate students. The project was designed to achieve LEED certification.
